That was actually a new bug, here:

        plen -= *offset;
        poff += *offset;

in __skb_slice_bits(), we should only subtract the offset from plen, not
add to poff. Then we just create some weird hole without any meaning. So
remove those two poff additions in the two loops, and the size issue is
resolved at least.
